Thanks Ray,

We are considering using the http: sub scheme mechanism as proposed by David Booth in "Thing described by" http://thing-described-by.org/ 

This fits the Cool URI 303 redirect model.

Your Idea of using info:xri/ as the base for the relative XRI is an interesting one that would allow in the same way that a http: sub scheme would.

I will discuss it with the XRI-TC.
